Dr. Einhorn, or "Dr E" as he's affectionately referred to within the TC community, is a man who needs no introduction. Many of us would not even be here were it not for Dr. Einhorn's pioneering work in the 1970's that led to a once in a generation leap in the oncology field, and the cures for many cancers including Testicular Cancer.
At the Testicular Cancer Summit, we will have not one but two amazing testicular cancer doctors on hand to answer your questions in two hour-long "Ask the Oncologists Anything Q&A" breakout sessions, Dr Phil Pierorazio of Johns Hopkins Medicine, and Dr Clint Cary of Indiana University! You've already been introduced to Dr Pierorazio, but here's a bit about Dr Clint Cary!
I am an urologist at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland and a passionate advocate for our testicular cancer patients. I am a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Guidelines Committee for Testicular Cancer and considered among the experts in robotic and open retroperitoneal lymph node dissection. There is no cancer like testicular cancer, it affects young men and because of the high cure rate, can have lasting effects for decades after successful treatment. For those reasons and more, there is no patient population like testicular cancer survivors – and there is no more rewarding group for whom to care.
The Testicular Cancer Summit is pleased to have Emily Cox-Martin, PhD as a panelist! "I am a Clinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Division of Medical Oncology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Working in the field of Psycho-Oncology, I help patients improve coping and adjustment around their diagnosis. I focus on the difficulties that emerge at the intersection of cancer and mental health across the cancer continuum, from diagnosis into survivorship.
